Tudhoe Village lies about five miles south of Durham City, just outside Spennymoor, a mile or two to the west of the Great North Road. The village is now a quiet backwater, its green a cul-de-sac that runs down from the main road towards the river Wear. In former times, however, Tudhoe lay at the centre of a network of roads: one ran to Durham by way of Sunderland (Bridge) and Croxdale, another to (Kirk) Merrington, a third to (Bishop) Auckland, a fourth to Whitworth and Byers Green, and a fifth across a ford to Brancepeth Castle and village on the far side of the river. The pond is now filled in.
